3.58/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

a clear deep red. the head is large but dies off quick.
Some nice maltiness in the nose, typical of a doppelbock, but there's also a significant alcohol burn which is unexpected and unwelcome.
the flavor it has is nice: malty and fruity, some raisins figs cherries, typical traits of large portions of Munich malt(and I believe this one is made with only Munich malt.) Unfortunately though it doesn't have a rich enough flavor to balance the alcohol and as a result the alcohol bite is a little too present.
Very light-bodied for the style and much less sweet than other doppelbocks. This makes it easier to drink, but ultimately it's thinness allows the alcohol to come through too much which really takes away from my enjoyment of it. I'm putting a few bottles aside to see if it mellows out over the next year or so.
I like it, but it could be so much more and really should be.

4.01/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance- Dark caramel with a slight red hue. Almost no head produced.

Aroma- Big whiff of sweet toasty malts.

Taste- Malt dominates this one with big caramel flavors and dark fruit like raisins and plum.

Feel- For such a malt bomb this is very clean and very drinkable.

Overall- Great beer and while heavy on the malt it works perfectly. Incredibly drinkable especially at 8%, which could make this a little dangerous. Definitely worth a try, and I know Ill be getting this again.
